Mini Cable Wrist/Arm Warmers

It was long and painful process, but I just finished these and LOVE them. A pair of black merino wool wrist and arm warmers for my friend, made in this cool little mini cable stitch that I had to personalize a little. The pattern will be available in January in our Knittles.Etsy.Store. I should really stop being attached to the stuff we make. I might have to buy them back when she is done with them - summer?

Want to pay in CAN?

Yes we know, our Canadian loonie hasn't been performing that well against US dollar and those Canadian shoppers on Etsy have noticed. If you are the kind of shopper (almost like us) and like to support Canadian artisans and Canadian businesses, we do have an option for you.

Please visit our Canadian store on a relatively new but very pretty and functional site
The inventory on the site is limited, but if there is anything you like in our etsy shop or have seen us at a local shows, just send us a note. We are very accommodating and there are lots of ways to get you warm hand-made goodies and we will always give you a Canadian rate.

I don't blame them, what momma wouldn't want a super luxerious, silk/alpaca/merino wool yarn that will keep you stylishly warm throughout the coming winter??? I want one for myself, but haven't found the time to make it yet, whoa is me... Best part? You get to choose your favoritecolours!

Virtual Arts & Craft Show from

We thought we'd try and we think it is a neat idea. Online Craft show where you sort of have your own "virtual booth". So far there are only 19 crafters featured and more being added. We will link to our "craft booth" once it is set up, but for now - go, check it out! There's never enough craft sites.

Knittles Festival Knit Cowl

Oh we were so excited to see knittles on the front page of etsy with our Festival Knit Cowl. It's really my favourite item at the moment, loved the yarn so much that I had to make one for myself and was wearing it to work today. Sorry for the crappy photo, taken with Apple's Photo Booth

We are gone from the front page by now, but I have a screen shot to add to my collection.

Wow - 3D Knit Dresses

Found these crazy awesome dresses through Twitter post.  The knitted dresses are by  Fashion designer Sandra Blacklund. Again, if only I had more time, would love to try something like this, hmmm maybe for work Christmas party. After all, knittles spent at least 187 hours in the month of October on fulfilling custom orders for Etsy and local lovers of handcrafted knit hats.

Knittles in Etsy's Handmade Blog

We were thrilled to find our stylish Hunter Hat in Etsy's Handmade Blog article, along with such cool items. I want pretty much everything on that list, not sure it is "budget" enough for me, need to sell a few Hunters first.
